With the success of last year’s BBC Radio 1 stage, which opened the music proceedings Friday night, the much-hyped dance music line up is back once again to kick start what’s set to be one of the biggest weekends of the summer.
Friday 18th August is a night not to be missed as BBC Radio 1 DJs; Annie Mac, Danny Howard and MistaJam hit the stage. The trio will be joined at Staffordshire, Weston Park by a host of Britain’s biggest and best DJs – Chase and Status (DJ Set), Duke Dumont and Disciples.
One of the world’s most well-known drum ‘n’ bass duos, Chase and Status will be heading to Virgin V Festival fresh from an action-packed summer touring the globe.
Grammy nominated Duke Dumont will also step up to the decks in Staffordshire with his huge chart smashes, ‘Need U (100%)’, ‘I Got U’ and ‘Won’t Look Back’ which will set the pace for the huge evening ahead.
Rounding off a jam-packed night of live dance music is South London trio Disciples who soared to the top of the charts in February 2015 with ‘They Don’t Know’. The deep house act followed it up with their Calvin Harris collaboration on ‘How Deep Is Your Love’ and just last month released ‘On My Mind’ which MistaJam featured as his hottest record in the world.
In Chelmsford, Annie Mac will be overseeing the night to ensure that everyone is raving in Hylands Park. After electrifying Staffordshire crowds last year on the BBC Radio 1 stage, Wilkinson is back and this time playing to Chelmsford. With some of UK dance music’s most hypnotic tracks under his belt – this is not a set to be missed.
Also joining the incredible bill is Bristol based drum ‘n’ bass duo, Icarus. After blasting on to the scene in 2013, the brothers have continued to magnetise crowds with their sleek and unique sound. They’ll be bringing fresh new material, including the recently released ‘King Kong’.
Netsky will also be taking to the BBC Radio 1 stage, bringing his stream of dance floor beats to Chelmsford. Riton also stars, known for mixing some of music’s most notorious dance floor fillers from ‘Rinse & Repeat’ to ‘Betta Riddim’.
BBC Radio 1 will be live broadcasting the evening from Weston Park, Staffordshire to ensure that no one misses out on this incredible line up of chart topping anthems.
